Alberta's New Democratic Party (NDP) has included geothermal as part of its campaign platform for the provincial elections on May 29th, 2023. Party leader Rachel Notley is quoted as saying, "Geothermal offers a range of clean technology solutions for today's industrial processes. It's also a potential source of electricity. Geothermal energy is a 'right-now' jobs prospect for those in the skilled trades, information technology and geospatial mapping."
CanGEA is also mentioned on the AB NDP website, including our Alberta Geothermal Policy and Regulatory Frameworks, which we created for AB Bill 36.
